I am interested in learning PHP. I only have a basic understanding of HTML, but have engineering experience in programming with C++ and MATLAB. Can anyone recommend the best place/process/book/etc. to start?

Thanks for you help!

I guess it depends on your learning style. I learn best by example, so I started with a User Management System Tutorial at PHP freaks, and used the [a href=\"http://php.net\" target=\"_blank\"]PHP MANUAL[/a] to figure out what all the different functions did. PHP Freaks has some great beginners tutorials

I agree with sanfly!

My style is to learn programing hardcore.. with the function list and this forum open beside and many other helpfull links at favorites..

I like to read code standart to make a clear and validate code.. like to use xhtml validation.. and other things..

What your own style? Reading books? Looking for problems? Looking for examples??


(If something is wrong, please tell me. I'm learning this language. Thank you)
